Lethargic and inner growth: Moments where you’re lethargic are worth looking into because you will find that there’s something in that moment or situation that isn’t resonating with you at all.  Lack of energy is an indication of something being disconnected with what you want from a heart and soul perspective to what path you’re on.  For this reason exploring your lethargic moments can bring inner growth and allow you to pursue your heart’s path towards a harmonious and happy life.


Lethargic and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: What words do I associate to the word lethargic? Why those words?  What are some common factors that I deal with on days where I’m lethargic?  Do I get lethargic only in certain instances?  How has a lethargic state affected my relationships?  What’s one incident that stands out the most to me where I was in a lethargic state?  When did I first notice days


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with lethargic at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. From this list pick the one word that reminds you of a major learning lesson from your lethargic life moments.  Then use the rest of the words to write about this moment and the lesson you learned.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about lethargic and allow them to flow throughout you. As you do this think of something that warms your heart and excites you.  Notice how different the two feelings are and as you turn back to the feelings brought about by lethargic thoughts see what common factors they hold.
